Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

since you ssaid you installed an rpm pack, as root, just type in "tft" and hit tab. it should auto-complete, hit ENTER, and should work then.
i havent used tftpd, but i dont have to go into any folder to start any of my servers. just do it from anywnhere, as wherever tftp is installed will be in ur $PATH, and hit ENTER.
ahh, tft [tab] finishes it off with 'tftopl' and when i het enter i get
'tftopl: Need one or two file arguments. Try `tftopl --help' for more information.'
and the help gives me this
""" Usage: tftopl [OPTION]... TFMNAME[.tfm] [PLFILE[.pl]]
Translate the font metrics TFMNAME to human-readable property list file
PLFILE or standard output.
-charcode-format=TYPE output character codes according to TYPE,
either `octal' or `ascii'; default is ascii for
letters and digits, octal for all else
-help display this help and exit
-verbose display progress reports
-version output version information and exit"""
but i just came to the realization that im prolly not going to be able to get a good FTP server thats not GUI but rather text/terminal.. and since i have installed and run proftpd i may just have to learn how to use that..
because when i start proftpd in the terminal it sais [OK] and that all,, so its running, but its obviously not GUI or a window would have poped up.
lol, i think i should prolly learn more about how these FTP-servers work before i try to install and use them. I dunno, what do you think is a good start since i have no bkgrnd knowladge on this matter?
yes, I want to set up and FTP server for others to connect/log into. and at first I was looking for a good GIU ftp program but after some reasearch it looks to me like all the good FTP servers are text baser terminal driven anyway..
i am ultimately trying to admin an ftp server and im just looking for a good place to start,
